A MOLD woman spoke of her concerns over covid-19 precautions at a North Wales hospital.

The woman, who did not want to be named, told the Leader her husband was admitted to Wrexham Maelor Hospital earlier this month after he collapsed at home.

In a letter to Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, shared with the Leader, the woman said during his stay he was moved around the hospital several times.

The couple claim to have seen several concerning incidents, including hospital staff walking from ward to ward without taking coronavirus precautions.

The woman said her husband was tested for covid when he arrived at the hospital and was found to be negative.

But a later test confirmed he had contracted the virus.

"We have shielded for 15 weeks," the woman said in the letter.

"An admission [to hospital] has turned out world upside down."

She also told the health board of her concerns at social media posts she had seen from people who claimed to have visited the hospital when it was not allowed.

The woman told the Leader: "He's home now. He's fine and back to normal, but it was disgusting there.

"When you go in there is no hand sanitizer.

"I was very worried for his safety and for my own.

"The nurses there were mainly agency staff and they didn't know about the people they were nursing. There was just a lack of information.

"I think it's very frightening for people in there."

The woman also said she had concerns about patients being allowed to enter and leaving the hospital, after she said her husband witnessed such an occurrence several times during his stay.

Gareth Robinson, managing director of Wrexham Maelor Hospital, said the hospital is investigating the woman's concerns and will be "contacting her directly to discuss them."
